    Sneak Peak at the new Dave Filoni directed project, Star Wars: Inglourious Jedi Basterds. Much like the original IG in which stuff that didn't historically happen, did happen. (Such as killing Hitler in a movie theater.) In this movie, Obi-Wan did buy those death sticks. The results were... unpleasant:

    Scotland could make for a great location for some scenes from Episode VII. As another poster commented, Scotland has some stunning landscapes. As this is based on something in The Sun, I wouldn't take it as fact, but you never know ... until you do know. After all, Game of Thrones is shot in Northern Ireland.

    I know luke's son will continue the family tradition of whining. I guess he'll be whining about his freedom.

    India!! In fact many Jedi teachings a derived from the Hindu religion. Why not shoot a scene here. I would love to see that one day. It will be cheaper too lol

    Have bagged every location site with the exception of shots in Norway this if it turns out to be true will be a wee bit easier as I'm under an hour from mountains of Scotland.

    Speaking of which, that would be the place to film any scenes that might take place on Dellalt.

    I think they used African ones. We have much smaller elephants compared to them.

    This is probably a false rumor since its from the Sun as others have said and since it just happened to break on Star Wars Day (they obviously knew we would be looking for any kind of news on that day) but I think it would be an interesting setting. I like the idea of a Jedi Temple set in an area like this or perhaps a battle. Lots of intriguing possibilities.

    There's a link to wikipedia Epi. VII that also says filming will begin behind a shopping Mall in Sheffield?, England, in an abandoned quarry. A quarry that has been used in other films.

    I love Scotland. The article mentioned a Mountain Planet. Interesting. I wonder just how far they are in the pre-production/writing of the script.

    I hope they do some stuff in Fox Studios in Sydney still, since this time around I know somebody who works there :p

    But Scotland could be amazing. I wonder what for?

    I think they're Asian Elephants; Banthas aren't as big as African Elephants. Besides, African Elephants are a lot less cooperative about being ridden.

    I got excited when I saw this,

    then Saw Breezy's post that it was from the Sun, I died a little inside :(

    interesting piece of Trivia though: Digitalspy forums allows the four letter word for poo, but this site doesn't, [end IMDB style trivia]
